ARS continually looks for opportunities to partner with universities, businesses, other federal agencies, and state and local governments. These partnerships are designed to augment research programs, expedite research results to the private sector, exchange information and knowledge, stimulate new business and economic development, enhance U.S. trade, preserve the environment, and improve the quality of life for all Americans.
The USDA, ARS, Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) grants licenses to qualified businesses and individuals who wish to commercialize inventions resulting from federally supported research performed at USDA laboratories and research locations. Companies interested in licensing USDA inventions can obtain a license application online or from an OTT licensing staff member.
